Gadkari was speaking on ‘Muslim Issues With The Government’ at a seminar organised by the Vidarbha Muslim Intellectuals Forum here.

“One thing (I am saying) from the core of my heart…my party and we are very much committed to (ensure) all type of development and progress of the Muslim community,” he said.

“We do not want to discriminate against anybody on the basis of caste, creed, sex, religion and language. We may have some differences of opinion on various issues,” the senior BJP leader said.

“We have to start a discussion on it, and it is (high) time, for our country, that after discussion we understood each other….we need cooperation, coordination and communication in the society…,” he said.

The transport minister said he listened to what other speakers had to say at the event, adding, “I promise to think on them, and my party will think on them.” The minister also underlined the importance of education for the community.

“I am of the view that spread of education is required the most in the Muslim community, and in that women should get equal rights with men,” he added. Agencies

  1. Sad to see such stand of BJP, if they also start minority appeasement politics, then what is the difference between them and congress.

  2. Mr. Gadkari Is there any Muslim who is committed to India’s and BJP’S Development?

    All I watch is Hyderabad MLA’s video where he wants Police which happens to be Hindu to not interfere so as Muslims could kill all Hindus in 15 Minutes.

  3. Crocodile tears of worst enemies of muslims and Islam. Perfect hypocrites. He talks only of education for muslims. There are lacs of highly educated muslims without job though percentage wise less. Let him give jobs to muslims who are already educated.
